2Fit Box

With our 2Fit Box, you can fit a bridle and/or girth yourself while we help you remotely.
SINGLE BRIDLE

Do It Yourself

The 2Fit Box allows you to fit everything in your own arena, in your own time, and at your own pace. You will receive a package that holds three headpieces, two nosebands and various pads. This is not the bridle that will eventually be yours to keep, but we use it for finding the right adjustments. We will guide you remotely through photos and video clips and give you the advice you need. This way, you can experience the improvement in your horse's locomotion due to the better fit of our unique bridle for yourself. Once you are done fitting, you will send the bridle and other parts back to us in the same box and, based on the photos/video clips and the filled-out form, we will assemble your perfectly fitted 2Fit bridle. If you wish to have a 2Fit Consultation later in time, we can accommodate that at a reduced rate. Price indication: Single bridle €355 | Remote 2Fit Consultation €75.

Let’s get started!

Start

You will receive a 2Fit Box with three different headpieces, two different nosebands, pads, general cheekpieces and a browband.

Changes

Step by step. A bridle consists of seven parts that need to be assessed separately. If you change two details simultaneously, you will feel a difference, but your horse cannot make a distinction in its reaction. By changing everything independently and in small increments, you can genuinely refine things perfectly down to the smallest detail! In our instruction video and e-book, we show you how to do this step by step.

Guidance

We will guide you remotely through photos showing your horse with the bridle and videoclips of you riding your horse in walk, trot, and canter. We look for engagement, relaxation, and self-carriage in motion.

Feel

The horse gets to choose. We do not like making concessions – absolutely out of the question!! Your horse gets to choose and no one else. We will not try something because we think it might be better, and we are not making any decisions based on aesthetics. Your horse will make you feel the difference while riding. And yes, the difference will be so significant that it will be noticeable from the sidelines and can be captured on camera. No matter how minor the differences are, a horse knows what feels good and what does not.

Finish

When we have decided which headpiece and noseband get the best results for your horse, you will send the 'fitted' version with the other parts in the box back to us. This means we will have the correct fit, and we can replace the 'general' parts with the right size for your horse to keep any pressure off the jaw. You can use the form to indicate which colour leather you prefer and which colour trim you would like, lacquer or no lacquer, and what colour buckles and browband you have picked. We will assemble your customised fitted bridle and send it to you!

Puzzle

We love to complete the puzzle. We analyse the entire horse and, if necessary, refer you to specialists that can help you solve the puzzle. Because let's be honest, there is no room for doubt. That is why we would like to help you get all the answers.

GIRTH

Finding the fit

The 2Fit Box allows you to fit everything in your own arena, in your own time, and at your own pace. In girths, the guiding principle is the size of your current girth. You receive four different types of girths in the requested size. This way, you can experience which girth improves your horse's locomotion due to the better fit of our girths. Once the fitting is complete, you will send the three girths that did not make the cut back to us in the same box. The girths that we send out in the Fit Box are black with metal buckles. If you want a different colour, you can send all the girths back, and we will immediately send you the girth of your choice! If you wish to have a 2Fit Consultation later in time, we can accommodate that at a reduced rate. Price indication: Girth €269 each | Remote 2Fit Consultation €75.

Let’s get started!

Start

You receive a 2Fit Box that holds four different types of girths of the size that you requested. The guiding principle is the size of your current girth.

Changes

Step by step. If you change two details simultaneously, you will feel a difference, but your horse cannot make a distinction in its reaction. It is essential that you only change the girth and try the different sizes under the same circumstances (same saddle pad, same bridle, etc.).

Guidance

Through photos showing your horse with the girth and video clips of you riding your horse in walk, trot, and canter, we can remotely support you when making your decision. We look for engagement, relaxation, and self-carriage in motion.

ABOUT 2FITHORSES

I have always been pleased with your products since they truly changed my horse for the better. Never knew how much the fit of a bridle behind the ears could affect the horse. Thank you so much for the terrific service!! And I truly mean that. I did not know that a bridle and bit could make such a difference. Even a pad (or no pad) makes such a huge difference. So there is only one thing left to share: my compliments!!

ABOUT 2FITHORSES

My horse will only perform when wearing your bridles! I was stubborn and tried a different brand. That was terrible (according to my horse), and so I concurred ?. I am done gambling. When I get a new horse, I immediately call 2FitHorses - they save me a lot of trouble!

Isabelle

ABOUT 2FITHORSES

The essence of what 2FitHorses represents makes her company and method of working very unique. To start with 'unique': each individual is unique, as is each horse. That is why it is so important to see what a horse needs and what it does not need. Not everybody likes the same shoes, and the same applies to bits, girths, and bridles. Each bridle is made up of various parts, and each part can feel different or trigger a reaction. That is why it so difficult: the puzzle never seems finished. Sometimes you do not know where to start, and sometimes you do not know whether the last pieces of the puzzle will fit. 2FitHorses specialises in these types of puzzles. Each piece of the puzzle is dissected to get the best possible result from it. It requires a lot of knowledge to be specialised. Biomechanics is no different because if you are walking uncomfortably all day long, you will start to compensate, and due to compensating, injuries will occur. Something we are trying to avoid at all cost. 2FitHorses has developed several headpieces, nosebands, and girths. In addition to working with proven brands of bits, the fact that each piece of the puzzle is taken into consideration makes that the puzzle will finally be complete.

ABOUT 2FITHORSES

I first encountered 2FitHorses 1.5 years ago. My mare had recovered from a long-lasting injury, and we finally made it back to training and competing (Advanced Medium). My trainer advised me to look into bit fitting, and I did not know what hit me. The positive change Karin could achieve with a fitted bridle and bit. Horses cannot talk, but my mare was quite clear in what she liked and did not like. The same scenario happened again when we had a fitting for a girth. Once again, the mare obviously showed what she liked and did not like. We benefited from this in our training and have since made it to the next Advanced class. Many pieces of the puzzle have fallen into place, but we are not quite there yet. My mare is by no means a dressage horse in appearance (she was bred for jumping), and she has three basic gaits. She is very eager to work, physically capable of working and is always ready to go. I, therefore, feel obligated to her to do everything in my power to make things work. After consulting my trainer once more, I decided to ask Karin to come for a double bridle fitting. Just to see if we could fit another piece of the puzzle into place, so training might just go a little bit more smoothly, and we could shine more confidently in the arena. It was perfect timing: a double bridle has a lot to offer. More stability in contact results in a more quiet seat of the rider and a horse that can really make more of a connection, meaning the exercises will go more smoothly too. I am a perfectionist but can also be really on the fence about some things. When I buy a new bit or girth, I always keep second-guessing myself. Is the bit at the right height? Is it the right size? Does the noseband need tightening or loosening? Is this the best girth? But now Karin has fitted everything, I can let go of any doubt. She has so much knowledge that I have absolutely no doubts about the tack and whether this is the best choice for my mare or not. Together with my trainer and thanks to Karin, we can feel confident about any upcoming competitions!!

ABOUT 2FITHORSES

I was only working at Stal Brons for a short time when I met Karin. Karin is someone who has an eye for detail and is a perfectionist while looking at what you and, especially, what your horse needs. My horse was suffering from a cracked lip for quite some time, and I was at my wit's end... I tried everything! Then I met Karin, and she told me that she could help Ivy by lasering the affected spot twice a week. She could also advise me on how to heal cracked lips, said that it needed time, and reassured me by saying that it could fully recover. And she was completely right! When she works on fitting a double bridle, she really takes her time and properly cares about your horse, which was necessary as my horse is very sensitive. I benefited so much from the perfectly fitted bridle during training and competitions that I also purchased a snaffle bridle. However, when she designed bridles with rose-gold buckles, I picked out a new double bridle and made sure it had a rose-gold browband and buckles! I love it so much - it looks stunning! True perfection, and to put the finishing touch, Karin designed a browband based on my competition outfit and made it in such a way that it perfectly matches my horse and me. Karin also designs girths, and since I am such a fan of her bridles, I also wanted to get a girth, and wow! The difference a girth can make is astonishing (of course, it also has rose-gold buckles ?). I can honestly say I am very happy with and enthusiastic about Karin/2FitHorses. She uses excellent, high-quality materials and provides a great service! I cannot wait to see what kind of beautiful designs Karin comes up with next ?.

ABOUT 2FITHORSES

Two years ago, Karin came to my yard to fit a single bridle. I had heard of bit fitting, but watching Karin work is something you have to experience for yourself. In contrast to what many people think, there is a lot more to it than just switching bits. Karin gets the best out of any combination with her expertise, eye for detail and propensity for perfection. As was the case for Fermani and me. Her expertise shaped the combination of my horse and me today. Karin has drastically changed my horse's posture, self-carriage, and locomotion with her products! This is why, in addition to my snaffle bridle, I also asked Karin to custom fit my double bridle and girth. Proper tack that allows your horse to work to the best of its ability truly makes a difference. Because every horse is unique, as are Karin's products. Once again, words cannot explain. You will have to experience it for yourself.
